(the rare share...)


Photo of what's in the hobby shop (the term 'hobby' used loosely). A throaty 11:1 C/R engine ready to load into a race car, an almost-stock M10 on the nearly-completed M10 test stand. Colorado car is a rebuild/resto in progress. Next week a new race car build project comes back from paint, will be thrashing for 5 weeks to have it ready for the first race. Fun stuff. -KB

 for us SoCal'ers that is total tease:  what is the address so us local folks can drift over and drool over everything and drag our chins along the floor and commit other such wanton acts of jealousy and possessive covetness ??


The shop floor isn't all-that clean, Carl (chuckle).


Actually, it's not a retail shop nor are there regular hours (I'm looking into setting it up as an owner's 'club'). Folks come by appointment or if in contact while I'm there, feel free to contact me via PM for more on that. (Perhaps I'll have an open house as the two projects get a little further along...) -KB

A shop project which stalled for a while, just got back to it. It's an M10 engine run stand for testing / break-in / heat cycling. Electric fan up front for additional cooling, will be adding fuel pump and lines for race engines and the occasional Tii engine linkage set-up. Some detail and finish work remains, and need to find a better tach (and, perhaps, not so large...).


That-there engine has an original single-barrel solex (per customer) over a semi-strong build; seems to have tons of bottom end. -KB

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
